Immigration policies affecting MBA job search - US and UK [#permalink] New post 26 Jun 2011, 03:37
All,

I was hoping to hear your views on the current immigration policies in the US and UK ad how (or if at all) these impact on internationals' MBA job search.

1. What is the maximum period for which MBA grads can stay in the US and UK after completion of the MBA?
2. Do these maximum stay periods have a significant impact on internationals' job search (for both function and location) ?
3. Are there any industries that are more favourable from an immigration viewpoint?

Thanks.

Nowadays , it has become very tough for international students ( specially Indian and Chinese) to get H1b sponsorship post MBA even from good full time programs. Many of my friends and people I know are utilizing the full 12 month OPT period to find job in a H1b sponsoring company. Moreover , for many who are already working in US right now , unless they stay outside USA for 1 year , the previous H1b period is being deducted from the new H1b period of 6 years. Times are tough , and I hear ( most of them rumours) that much more stronger H1b rules will be put into place in the next 1-2 year.

That's why I am reconsidering my decision to go for a full time MBA now . If the ROI is not that great , then taking such a huge debt to finance graduate studies does not make sense to me.
